A day in the life of a Java developer
Get into the office, have a chat with the team and check through a few emails. Then it’s onto our morning standup call – that’s basically where we talk with the wider project team about what we did the day before and what we are going to do today. We also chat through any issues or blockers with the scrum master.
Following that call we sometimes have separate meetings with sub-teams to discuss anything that came up on the standup that we may need to address in more detail.
Then we get to coding! Typically this will be interspersed with meetings to discuss system architecture, software design, data modelling and specific areas of the application that we might be working on.
Strangely enough, security! We are currently working with one of our clients to implement a new single sign-on solution into the application architecture. It’s new technology for the client and it’s also new for us so we are taking on the challenge together.
You may be straight out of university having studied Java as part of your degree or you could be a senior developer looking for a complete change. There is a lot of direct interaction with clients as well, so good communication and people skills are essential.
If fluency in Java is something you strive for, there’s no better place to start than here at The Sheffield College. We have a the perfect course for beginners with our Introduction to Java Programming course, and what’s great is that it starts in April! Happy Days.
